No and yes. When I have a client in the inTRAnet and want to get out
to a server in the inTERnet, connecting to, say,

    https://banking.bank24.de/

then the client will use whatever "security proxy" is configured (say:
an apache-1.3b6 with proxy feature enabled) and issue a request...

    CONNECT banking.bank24.de:443 HTTP/1.0

The apache in question has no idea what the SSL deal is all about,
it simply connects to (in my situation: the upstream firewall
proxy on port 80, else: ) the requested server on the requested
port.
